State economy expected to grow by 4 to 6 pct this year – Abang Johari

KUCHING, Oct 9 — Sarawak’s economy is expected to grow by four to six per cent this year, said Chief Minister Datuk Patinggi Abang Johari Tun Openg.

He said in 2020 the state’s economic growth had contracted 3.2 per cent due to the global economic downturn and the COVID-19 pandemic.

“The state’s Gross Domestic Product or GDP has also contracted between six and seven per cent last year.

“However, during these difficult times, with prudent financial management without compromising the state’s financial resilience… this year, Sarawak’s economy is expected to record a positive growth rate of between 4 and 6 per cent,” he said.

He said this in his speech at the state banquet held in conjunction with the 85th birthday celebration of the Yang Dipertua Negeri Sarawak Tun Abdul Taib Mahmud here tonight.

Meanwhile, Abang Johari assured that the state government would continue to protect Sarawak against elements that could divide the unity of its people, especially extreme views that touch on sensitive aspects of others’ religious beliefs.

He said Sarawak was fortunate because the state’s immigration autonomy protects its people from undesirable elements from outside.

“This autonomy must be defended to preserve the well-being of Sarawak,” he said.

Three children drown: Family leaves it to fate

SETIU, Oct 9 — Losing the only daughter to a tragedy is hard to swallow, what more when she is the lifeblood of the family.

But that is the dilemma Che Mohd Humaizi Che Jemani, 38, has to face when his only daughter Nurulhasha Humaira, 11, was found drowned with two of her cousins at the river-mouth of Kampung Mangkuk here earlier in the morning.

A distraught Che Mohd Humaizi said Nurulhasha Humaira who is the eldest child, was a good-hearted girl, jovial and always looked after her three siblings.

“They had gone to the river estuary in the past week and my daughter was delighted to camp there and search for clams. So she returned to the same site with her cousins.

“I had spoken to my siblings and they too agreed to go along to that location yesterday morning. But alas, I never expected it was to be our last moment of happiness,” he said when met at the Forensics Unit of Hospital Setiu here today.

In the 5.30 pm incident yesterday, six children who were looking for clams with their family were lost in a sudden tidal surge. Only three were saved while another three were found drowned early this morning.

The first body, Nur Amni Insyirah Saiful Tarmizi, 9, was found by rescuers at 1.08 am, 800 metres from where she was reported missing whereas the second body — brother of Nur Amni Insyirah, Muhammad Aryan Faheem aged 7 — was found at 1.47 am, 1.5 km away from where the first body was retrieved.

The body of Nurulhasha Humaira was found at 8.15 am, five metres away from where they were first reported missing.

Nurulhasha Humaira was a Year Five pupil of Sekolah Kebangsaan Kampung Bukit, Kuala Terengganu, whereas Nur Amni Insyirah and her younger brother, Muhammad Aryan Faheem were Year 3 and Year 1 students at SK Chabang Tiga, Kuala Terengganu.

Recalling the incident, Che Mohd Humaizi said he received a phone call from his wife Nurulhuda Abd Rahman, 38, who was frantic after realising their only daughter and two others (niece and nephew) failed to be saved.

“At that time, I was fishing with a friend about 500 metres from the scene. My wife and her siblings were keeping an eye on the children, but the tragedy struck suddenly… Even though we are devastated, we leave it to Allah’s will.

“The three of them will be buried together at the Kampung Losong Panglima Perang cemetery, Kuala Terengganu,” he said, expressing his gratitude to the rescue team and public for prayers and rendering assistance to them.

Vetting process for Zone ‘A’ fishermen gives opportunity for new licence applicants – Ahmad

KOTA TINGGI, Oct 9 — A vetting process for Zone A fishermen will be done if there are fishermen who are no longer active in carrying out fishing, thus providing an opportunity for new applications.

Deputy Agriculture and Food Industries Minister I (MAFI) Datuk Seri Ahmad Hamzah said this will be conducted after the Fisheries Department received about 16,000 applications for licences from fishermen.

He said the vetting process would also be done if licensees did not renew their licences within three years.

“We also need to estimate the number of catches (of fish) done by the existing fishermen in order to give out a licence.

“Before that, we did vetting, which means fishermen who are no longer active will have their licences revoked. So if there is a vacancy, we will give that (another) person (fisherman) a chance,” he said at a press conference after visiting the Kampung Sedili Kechil jetty and presenting a MAFI Prihatin contribution, here, today.

Ahmad said this when asked to comment on the number of coastal fishermen who do not have licences.

He said the issuance of a licence was also based on a study conducted by the department, including the density of fish in Zone A, which is five nautical miles from the coast.

“However, it was found that the density of fish had decreased a lot, that is why fishing cannot be done. If done, it can cause habitat destruction,” he said.

For the record, the issuance of fishing licences for coastal marine fisheries including Zone A coastal fishermen has long been frozen by the government to safeguard fishery resources.

Meanwhile, commenting on the threat of foreign fishermen, Ahmad said the arrival of foreign fishermen detected in the country was in the East Coast area because the location is rich in fishery resources, however, the enforcement authorities are always keeping an active surveillance.

When asked whether Johor would receive a large allocation from Budget 2022, he said the allocation was according to need and demand.

He added that the current need was to ensure that the food supply was always sufficient.

KKMM plans to establish creative arts associations – Zahidi

KANGAR, Oct 9 — The Communications and Multimedia Ministry (KKMM) plans to establish a creative arts associations at both national and state levels to facilitate the coordination of efforts to further develop the industry.

Deputy minister Datuk Zahidi Zainul Abidin said, with the existence of such associations involving the ministry, the process to provide specific funds would be easier as they could be channelled directly to the target groups.

“We will gather creative arts players and set up the association and will also work with the Youth and Sports Ministry and the Tourism, Arts and Culture Malaysia Ministry, as it will also involve culture and youth,” he told reporters after the closing ceremony of the Komuniti@Finas (KoFI) programme, here tonight.

Also present were National Film Development Corporation (Finas) chairman Zakaria Abdul Hamid and deputy director-general (Production and Technical), Syirfan Indra Mitra Surya Hussin.

Zahidi said the establishment of the association would also give room for traditional creative arts players to pass on their artistic knowledge to the younger generation.

“For example, the Awang Batil performance in Perlis, could be made more interesting by infusing more modern storytelling effect without changing the original value of the art,” he said.

He said the same goes with boria and Makyong that had attracted the participation of the younger generation, adding that continuous efforts must be undertaken to preserve the traditional performances that were part of the nation’s heritage.

“We hope that venturing into the field of creative arts will also help increase the people’s income and contribute to the country’s revenue…this proposal will be implemented immediately for the development of the country’s creative industry,” he said.

On KoFI, he said the three-day programme which ended today, involved several components including the Creative Human Capital Development Workshop, Prisma Micro Fund Pitching Session and CSR Visit: Finas Malaysian Family.

He said through the Prisma Micro Fund Pitching Session, an allocation of RM400,000 under the Malaysian Creative Industry Stimulus Package (Prisma) was provided to produce 40 creative content projects.

“The KoFI programme also highlights the unique attractions in Perlis such as Padang Besar through a special documentary that can entice domestic and international productions to use them as a location for content production works,” he said.
